Question Sirius Sportster in E46

Aight, here goes. I got an External radio, the Sportster. Not interested into integrating. I like the unit I have as it lets me store up to an hour of music. I have the f
FM direct adapter that basically is slaved in between the car receiver and antenna. What adapters do I need?

I haven't seen a setup using the fm adapter. I would just get the aux audio in adapter or an ICE ipod integration kit (has ipod interface AND regular aux audio in) and hook it up to that.

I found an antenna kit by Metra. 40-EU30. This will allow me to go directly to head unit thru the antenna co-ax. I had this setup on my SRT8 300 and currently om my Camaro. It's a much cheaper solution. The unit in the car now would have to be updated to the later model. Plus the scroll on them suck.

The docking station for the Sirius radio has an input for an ipod hookup. The sound quality will be just fine for factory set up. However, If I wanted to spend thousands...this would be a crappy way of doing it.

I only plan on driving this car for a few thousand miles. I bought it to flip. So it's basically a temp install.
